Edwin Edwards said he won't vanish into retirement since losing a bid for U.S. Congress on Saturday (Dec. 6) night. And starting next fall, if all goes according to a plan, residents can see the legendary Louisiana politician every day from the comfort of their couch.

Garret Graves beats Edwin Edwards in race for Louisiana's 6th Congressional District
Saturday, 06 December 2014 22:11
Republican Garret Graves is headed to Washington to represent Louisiana's 6th Congressional District.

Saturday, 06 December 2014 21:09
Republican Garret Graves had a large lead over Democrat and former Gov. Edwin Edwards in early returns in the race for Louisiana's 6th Congressional District Saturday night.

Graves' lead is not a surprise: Based on the conservative demographics and voting patterns of the intensely gerrymandered 6th District, political observers have…
Edwin Edwards' lopsided congressional loss his first defeat at the ballot box in legendary political career
Saturday, 06 December 2014 21:09
In the end, the odds for the 87-year-old ex-convict and four-term governor of Louisiana were far too much, even for Edwin Edwards. The man is pushing 90 and spent eight-and-a-half years in federal prison for corruption convictions. But those facts probably can't be blamed for the legendary politician's first career loss at the ballot, a career that started six decades ago at age 24 when he was elected in 1954 to the Crowley City Council.…
